Steve Davis has been practicing medical malpractice law for the past 29 years. He has a well-established trial law firm which provides legal representation and counsel to individuals across the country who have been injured due to medical malpractice. Steve’s legal skills and success have been well-recognized in Texas and nationally.
As a seasoned medical malpractice lawyer, Steve takes on complex litigation, taking the time to learn the medicine involved in his clients’ cases. Since 2012, Steve has devoted a significant portion of his practice to the prosecution of Wernicke’s encephalopathy cases and has successfully handled these cases in Texas and nationally.
Steve is here to share his expertise on the topic of Wernicke’s encephalopathy, since all too often, successful litigation has proven that healthcare providers have failed to timely initiate empiric thiamine repletion, particularly for patients at risk of malnutrition, including bariatric surgery patients, patients with chronic alcoholism, and prolonged hospitalizations related to chronic illnesses. It is these clients who have ended up with permanent neurological injuries that end up requiring life-long care which imposes multi-million dollar damage claims.
Steve is planning to share with you some medicolegal case scenarios which have been successfully tried or settled in a court of law. Each of these cases involve breaches in the standard of care by registered licensed dieticians who, because these clinicians failed to utilize requisite resources including their clinical experience, knowledge, skills and training, caused or contributed to permanent and profound neurological injuries of his clients.
